Beyond Treason-Video Explains How Depleted Uranium Kills For 4.5 Billion Years

The Story behind the Cover-up of Depleted Uranium (DU) Exposure, Chemical & Biological Exposure, and Experimental Vaccinations by Ex Air Force Captain and military nurse Joyce Riley who led the investigation into the First Gulf War Syndrome in 1991 and the spokesperson for the American Gulf War Veterans Association. 56% of those who served in the first Gulf War were disabled within less than 10 years. Joyce is also a co-host of the powerful, and influential nationally syndicated show, The Power Hour. http://www.beyondtreason.com/reviews.html

Panel of Experts:
Dr. Doug Rokke - Director of the U.S. Army Depleted Uranium Project
Leuren Moret - Geological Scientist and International Radiation Expert
Dennis Kyne - Nuclear Chemical & Biological Medical Specialist

This 89-minute http://www.beyondtreason.com/e video presents comprehensive and compelling documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up lasting over two generations. DVD includes bonus CD-Rom with thousands of pages of documents retrieved from the Freedom Of Information Act and many others from concerned whistle-blowers
The American Military has been getting away with mass murder for decades. Beyond Treason by Joyce Riley (RN) and William Lewis details in no uncertain terms the contamination of the planet by the United States military and the indefensible use of depleted uranium on the battlefield. In addition to exposing the deadly duplicity of the Department of Defense, Beyond Treason documents the genocide of our own and the coalition's military and Iraqis by chemical and biological exposure. Equally egregious are the experimental vaccines given to our troops, without their knowledge or consent, which has resulted in the fact that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 are ill and slowly dying from what the DOD still insists on calling "a mystery disease. "
The video also exposes the connection between depleted uranium (DU) and Gulf War Syndrome, and the underestimated dangers from the fallout of low-level DU radiation.
Scientists around the world sounded an alarm, emphasizing that DU's tiny particles travel long distances when airborne. When one truly analyzes the anatomy of this atrocity, we realize that the damage of using DU will last 4.5 billion years; in another words - forever!
It packs a knockout punch posing a threat to victor as well as vanquished. DU leaves radioactive particles in the air, water, soil, and food chain. These tasteless, invisible particles, if ingested and absorbed into your body's tissues, quietly kill.
At the Pentagon, DU is no mystery weapon. The American military has been testing it for 40 years, yet no one in the corridors of power gave much attention to ensuring that American GI's knew how to handle the new weapons system.
According to Gulf vets, they were never told of the risks of being exposed to a DU campaign. But after they come back home, the soldiers are growing mystified as their health deteriorates. Beyond Treason shows that whatever soldiers brought back with them from the Gulf is now afflicting their families. Their children became hospitalized with breathing problems when contaminated gear was dragged into their houses. Younger children born after the war often suffered strange blisters on their hands. Many wives gave birth to horrifically deformed babies or incurred miscarriages.
Whistle Blower: the Director of the U.S. Army Depleted Uranium Project. Doug Rokke is a thorn in the side of the military today because of what he learned eight years ago in the Gulf, where he served as lieutenant with the U.S. Army Preventative Medicine Command. According to Rokke, the message is clear. The United States Government knows about the health and the environmental consequences of using DU and doesn't care.
As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of "unknown causes," they wait for answers from their respective governmentsÉ but no satisfying or even responsible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to severe negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their "disposable army" mentality. How many more will have to die before action is taken?
Radioactive Wounds of War --Tests on returning troops suggest serious health consequences of depleted uranium use in Iraq --25 Aug. 2005 "U.S. forces first used DU in the 1991 Gulf War, when some 300 tons of depleted uranium-the waste product of nuclear power plants and weapons facilities... The Pentagon has expanded DU beyond tank and A-10 shells, for use in bunker-busting bombs, which can spew out more than half a ton of DU in one explosion, in anti-personnel bomblets, and even in M-16 and pistol shells... The problem is that when DU hits its target, it burns at a high temperature, throwing off clouds of microscopic particles that poison a wide area and remain radioactive for billions of years. If inhaled, these particles can lodge in lungs, other organs or bones, irradiating tissue and causing severe deformities. The DOD has refused to test for the multiple cases of DU poisoning.
